Nicklaus Subdivision Sewer Main
The Nicklaus Subdivision has installed their sewer main extension along 24th Street East, but permanent patching has been delayed due to weather conditions. Please be advised of rough road conditions and ongoing temporary patch work in the westbound lanes between Northwood Elementary and 94th Avenue East until further notice.

207 Meridian / North Edgewood Apartments
Initial clearing and grading work is underway for this project, located north of Emerald Street between Meridian and Jovita. Expect construction traffic access to and from Meridian to cause temporary impacts to northbound traffic weekdays between 8am and 5pm.

Meridian Utility Work
Level 3 Communications is upgrading their fiber optic system along Meridian between Emerald Street East and 36th Street East. With minimal work in the pavement expected, there will be occasional northbound lane closures during daylight hours while this work proceeds

Dechaux Road Traffic Revision
Access to Dechaux Road from Meridian Avenue East (bottom of the hill) is no longer permitted. A map with recommended detours to the Dechaux Road neighborhood is available here.

Storm Utility Work
During the week of February 26th (delayed due to the weather), Pierce County Public Works crews will be installing new drainage improvements just west of the intersection of 122nd Avenue East and 32nd Street East.  Expect delays while this work is completed.
